Our house has been at a standstill - still only have the footers poured. Rain has slowed everything...along with a crew that isn't very motivated. Supposedly they will pour the walls tomorrow, but we have heard this same line several times. I'm not holding my breath.
I haven't been writing my thoughts down much - had a rough couple of weeks. For some reason Max was testing every limit with me. I don't know how many fits were thrown, how many tears were cried...I wouldn't even be able to count. His new favorite phrase was "If you don't let me do __________(insert anything that is remotely important to a 4 yr. old boy) then you can never be my mommy again...EVER!" Wow, that sure warms a mommy's heart (that phrase is dripping in sarcasm)...
I feel like I'm a pretty patient mother - but I was literally at my wits end. I finally sat him in time-out, had a LONG talk with him - and I think we've turned the corner. He's been acting so much better and seems to be on the right path. Scary to think this is only the beginning of our long talks about behavior!
Just a couple more days of school and then I'm off for the summer - so ready to relax, swim, work on our house, etc. Hope everyone is having a great week - I will try to update more often!
